One challenge per month

Look at me blogging 2 weeks in a row! I know I skipped a week but hey-improvement! That's what I am aiming for :)

One thing I decided to do for this year is focus on one exercise-related challenge per month. I think this will help keep me motivated, feeling good, and is not too difficult a goal with all of the other things I got going on! So here's what I am thinking for the first 6 months of 2014:

January:
Half Marathon-Done!

February:
25 hot yoga sessions in 28 days

March:
Les Boise 10K Trail Run

April:
Prison Break Out 10K

May:
Camel's Back Duathlon OR Famous Idaho Potato 10K OR Barking Spider Bash (depending if it is in May or April) OR High Desert Trails Run. Unfortunately all but the Idaho Potato Race do not have details for 2014 yet so I will just sit tight on my plans.

June:
Hike a different trail every weekend

July:
Overnight backpacking trip

I think this will give me a good start. It's getting me pumped just thinking about it! My February challenge starts on Saturday and I a…

The trip to Disneyland started a few days before the race. My parents, brother, and I headed down on Wednesday to see my grandparents, who live in Oxnard, CA. We had lunch at Stone brewery in Escondida before we stopped in Oxnard for the night. It was so nice to see them and get to visit a bit before heading to Anaheim.



On Thursday we made our way to Disney Land where we met up with my aunt and cousin as well as my other cousins. We headed to the Expo to pick up our bibs and other race items (see above). It was pretty busy but well organized. The bibs had our names on them, Disney is just too cool!
The next morning we got up ea…
